Re: Moving past ignorance

How can we improve our attitudes when we feel we are about to do/say something ignorant?


I think we should always keep an open mind and to be accepting of everyone's beliefs.

I think being open minded is so important and also being honest, asking someone to tell you more or explain to you doesn't mean you are dumb but it shows you are willing to learn. Thinking ignorantly is one thing, so lets explore that, where it is coming from, educate ourselves before acting ignorantly.

Do research into whatever we don't understand, ask someone.

Talk to that person or a member of that group and asking them questions to get the facts. If it's not possible to talk to them, then read something by them/about them. Smiley Happy
